Oh look who's at the top of the (crappy) division today?

Please, Hicks, we prefer "B League" or "junior varsity." Show your boy some respect.

Just saying they are still in it!

As long as the Cowboys keep sucking and I don't see how anyone could hope against that.

But, I don't think our fans do happily lap it up, I think they go online and talk about how it was a bad show.

Saw the new Hardees/Terrell Owens "Philly" commercial on TV today...  Pretty funny...

Oh! That! No, no, no, you're not ready to step into The Court of the Crimson King. At this stage in your training an album like that could turn you into an evil scientist.

Seriously.  Every time, too.

Find that I can groove with the beat when I let go
So put your worries on hold
Get up and groove with the rhythm in your soul

Philadelphia: where they boo injured people.

Jimbo, defend these Neanderthals.

A couple things on that:

1. That seemed to me to be more of a reaction to the perception that the NO defense was faking injuries to slow down the Eagles offense. Now, I don't believe any of the Saints players were doing that, but that did happen to us throughout the season (most notably against the Raiders and Cardinals, iirc). So I think this was just more than an expression of that frustration rather than a booing of an injured player (Michael Irvin, one of the most hated opponents in Eagles history, was a boo; a no-name Saints CB had less do to with him than the situation).

2. In week 5 when the Eagles were playing the Giants at the Meadowlands, Michael Vick went down and...got booed, loudly! No mention of that on the broadcast at the time and certainly not in the national media following the game. But I'm pretty fucking tired of people acting like this is a strictly Philadelphia phenomenon.

3. If you boo an injured player, you are an complete asshole and I would never defend a shitbag like that.

And another year goes by without an Eagles Superbowl

I feel pretty good about our position in the division going forward. How bout you?

Finally, watching Fat Andy waddle off the field after dropping a 28 pt lead 2nd half lead was almost enough to offset the pain of watching the Birds lose. Two images will be ingrained on my brain for a while: watching racist Riley Cooper drop that ball coming across the middle with NOBODY around him, and Alex Smith calling a TO coming out of the 2 min warning. Genius, Andy, pure genius.

Maybe the fans were thinking that, but are they doctors? Keenan Lewis got taken to the locker room and wasn't allowed back in the game. So, in the absence of being certain, you end up risking booing legitimately injured people.

2. In week 5 when the Eagles were playing the Giants at the Meadowlands, Michael Vick went down and...got booed, loudly! No mention of that on the broadcast at the time and certainly not in the national media following the game. But I'm pretty fucking tired of people acting like this is a strictly Philadelphia phenomenon.

I don't generally hold NY/NJ fans in high regard when it comes to compassion and class, either... And for the record, are you saying the booing was mentioned during the broadcast Saturday night? I don't remember hearing any acknowledgment of it.

Keenan Lewis is hardly a "No-Name CB" if you've been paying attention this year.

And to answer your question about the division, I am optimistic.  New regime, 36 million in cap space, a TERRIBLE division. 

Remember that time a new offense took the league by storm for a season, then coaches had an off season to view tape and scheme for it?  Yeah, talk to me next year.  I have nothing but respect for Chip Kelly at this point.  He's done a hell of a job with a solid core of players that Andy Reid assembled.  We'll see how Matt Barkley and the rest of that draft pan out.  I do think Ertz is gonna be a monster going forward.
